Are contractors botching the work on your home in Millbrook AL?
This happens way too often.
Some contractors think that they can do poor quality work and get away with it.
Unfortunately, they usually do get away with it…
And sometimes the best thing you can do is fire them before they do more damage to your home.
Here are some recommendations for navigating this difficult and unfortunate situation…
Check Your Contract — Most homeowners don’t know it, but a lot of times there are contractual penalties for firing a contractor before the work is done or the bill is paid. That’s why it’s extremely important to read your contract and understand the ramifications of cancelling the contract. Ideally, you’ll want to find some way that the contractor has broken their part of the agreement, which justifies you firing them without penalty.
Get Adequate Documentation — Before firing the contractor, you’ll want to document everything. Take pictures and videos before and after the work they’ve done. Record conversations if necessary. And take notes on all relevant information that will help you if it goes to court. We also recommend to have them provide proof that they are licensed and insured.
Consider Mediation — If things get ugly, you might consider hiring a mediation company to help you and the contractor come to an agreement outside of court.
